YES! Yes yes yes this was the exact kind of breakdown that I was looking for. And now I understand why you didn't have it happen in the last chapter... she had to do it her own way.

After he 'overdosed' she had something to do. She needed to strengthen him, keep him whole and safe until he had court. She had something to focus on. Then he came back and he wasn't going to jail and suddenly the reason that Rose had let herself spend every second there was gone. He didn't need to be babysat, her logical reason for remaining in that house disappeared and everything felt like it started coming back up. What she went through, what he was doing to her.. and she had no problem to fix that kind of let her ignore those feelings for the time being and she just broke and ughhh THANK YOU. I just have known you'd do it at just the perfect time.

And know these realizations about how detached she'd been from her family lately does show us that maybe Krum isn't completely healthy for her. But that realization sends her on this little exploration of herself and gets her to the bottom of it all... and now she's letting all her feelings out, and he's just standing there taking it like such a sweet wonderful man and bah you give me so many feels.

That ending was so perfect. I didn't think you'd relieve my 'NO ROSE YOU IDIOT' feels at the end of this chapter, but you did ♥ not that I think it's the end of their issues, but maybe it's a start in the right direction.

Except for the man in suit. How does he relate to all this? What part is he playing in, first, showing up and clearly putting Krum into a state, then showing up right after the passing of a very large mistake of Krum's? Why did he want Rose to take that, why did he want her to see it, and does he tie into what actually happened with Krum that night? Because I'm still sticking to my delusional little world where Krum wouldn't do that again.

But it's gone. So he did do it. Maybe not on his own will? Is the Suit man an ex lovers jealous husband? Why would he force Krum to overdosing to the point of killing himself? What kind of grudge could he have?

Okay okay. I'm done speculating. But your little note about their only being four more chapters sort of made me want to cry :(.

Author's Response: I would probably be remiss if I didn't give you at least part of the credit for how this chapter turned out. I always planned for Rose to confront the feelings she was obviously avoiding, but I was going to postpone it until the end of the next chapter. The first draft actually had Krum coming to her place to sort of talk her into coming back to him. But I think you must have been in my head or something, and well this, I think, works a whole lot better for both characters. I much prefer the idea of Krum giving her space, allowing her to get it all off her chest in her own good time. It is, in so many ways, the least he could do.

I'm so glad your speculating on the man in the suit. He has a major role yet to play. And I won't give too much away (since it will all be revealed in a couple of chapters anyway), but you aren't wrong about the grudge...

I'm torn about this story ending too. On one hand, I'm super excited to finally finish a story -- something I've yet to do EVER. But starting all over again is scary. And I think my next go-around may be with *gasp* OF!

Thank you again for being your lovely self and leaving me another wonderful review. You should see the stupid grin I get on my face every time I read one :)
